Halo Data Drops

343 has been dribbling a series of cryptic 'data drops' each Friday, graduall building out some backstory. Is it leading up to Glasslands? Primordium? CEA? Halo 4? The answer is probably, yes.

Likewise. I just thought it was a funny title, since most of the discussion has moved on even though it's what we still play.

The title reminds me of the second Reach OT where some freaked out because they could not find it via search. (Or they claimed it was not findable via search)

A poignant reminder that the game has basically been a waiting room for this community. I still play it a bunch but not as much as I should be playing a Halo game.

A couple replies from that old OT.

Yeah I think territories should always be the Conquest style one, much better than the round based, can't reclaim a captured territory one. There should be 3 Plots, and 5 Plots for some of the large BTB maps.

The studio that made the game was closed right after they finished Halo Wars. I don't think we'll get a sequel.

Add lit plasma grenade drop on death with a 1 second timer.

Once there's a source for Halo 4 images I can legally use in GAF I am going to keep pointing out how Chief's shoulder pad is floating and not attached to anything.

1. I've played very little 3 Plots and no 5 Plots, but what I have played I have enjoyed quite a bit. I don't understand why Plots isn't in Multi Team but Crazy King is. 3 Plots makes way more sense in that list.

2. I always thought Halo Wars 2 would play more like a DotA game rather than a true RTS. Does that make any sense?
